Hidden pocket skirt - free via Fabric Restash!

I have never sewn with scuba fabric before, so when I spotted a piece at Restash the other week, I quickly snaffled it!  ( Thanks FunkBunny for donating it in the first place!)

There was just enough to squeeze out a new hidden pocket skirt. I really need to draw up a proper pattern for it, as I cut the front out too short & had to join a piece inside the pocket.  You can' t see it, but I can feel the seam which I didn't think through properly, and should have sewn differently - it feels a bit bulky, should have made a bigger seam allowance & sewn this down flat afterwards.  Oh well, live & learn!
Now I think I need to make some more plain coloured tops to wear with it, the crazy, funky print is waaaay to busy to wear with stripes!

  1. Awesome. Like to know how it is to wear and bet it washes up real well. Keep my eye out for some new tops coming soon :)
